Shouldn't php-mysql require php?
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
I have a package that requires php-mysql, according to the Fedora Extras
packaging guidelines, a sub package should require its main package. I just
assumed php-mysql should require php, yet it only requires php-common. Does
this make sense? When you you use php-mysql without using php and only
php-common? Should it not require php as well? Please clarify.
Okay, I guess I understand what you are doing here. php-common is actually php,
and the php package is the web interface to php. Kind of confusing from a
packaging perspective but makes sense from a user perspective. So, if my
package requires php-mysql, I should also add php to pull in the mod_php package
and web interface aspects of php also, correct?
